Go inside the first three days of practice of the 2011 season and for `the beginning of the end' - the onset of Al Scates' 50th and final year as head volleyball coach for the UCLA men's team.
See what it's like to be in the gym and get a `birds-eye view' of the most storied, heralded, and successful coaching career in the history of the sport of volleyball.
Day 1The first day of practice focuses on blocking techniques. Scates explains what they will be looking for in each drill throughout the practice. Throughout the day's drills, you will hear Scates coaching his blockers one-on-one. He also introduces a brand new drill to his team called the Flinch Drill. This drill is a very exciting drill used to see who the aggressive diggers are on his team.
Day 2Day two starts off with a coaches meeting to discuss personnel decisions and to go over what they learned from Day 1 practice. The main focus of Day 2 drills is having he UCLA defenders read hitters and their choice of shots. Also covered is the idea of serving tough to try to disrupt the opponent's "go to" hitter.
Day 3Day three of UCLA men's volleyball practice focuses mainly on serving with a great look at their pre-game strength and conditioning routine. Coach Scates explains his serving philosophies to his team and uses three different serving drills to work on it. The main goal of the serving drills is to disrupt the opponent's offense by keeping their main hitter out of the mix. The "pre-hab" exercise routine shows the entire workout that UCLA volleyball uses before a game. Great detail goes into showing the whole workout from warm-up to weight training.
This is an unprecedented chance to `go inside'--and own forever--these lead off practices for the 50th and final season of volleyball's coaching legend, Al Scates.

His demeanor and smoothness exude confidence and steady leadership. Loved getting to 'sit in' on the coaches meetings too. Have always wanted to observe UCLA VB practices ... just a tremendous job!
I have come to expect that if there is a coach who has excelled, in any sport, you guys will have a compelling DVD with them ... job well done on getting Coach Scates on DVD in his final season!!
